The British Raj
Page Last Updated: January 01, 2015
The "British Raj" or the British Rule of India is period of British
colonization of the Indian subcontinent. The British Raj started soon after the 1857 riots for independence (see:
Sepoy Mutiny) when the power controlled by the East India Company was transferred to the British Government, and ended with
home-rule for India (and Partition of India) in 1947.
